Bean 'n Ham soup

Recommended Posts

Just the thing for those cold, windy days....my bean soup. I like to have some ciabatta's with melted swiss on top as an accompaniment. 

 

 

            Bean ‘n Ham Soup

 

                                                                               

1 16 oz bag of Navy or Great Northern beans

3 smoked ham hocks plus ham trimmings/chunks, about 2 cups, or you can use 2 thin-cut cooked and smoked ham steaks, cubed, in place of the trimmings

1 tsp salt

½ tsp Basil or 2 Basil leaves

¼ tsp Rosemary

6-8 peppercorns

2 Qts (8 cups) water

1 very large onion, medium chop

2-3 ribs of celery, diced small, about 1 full cup

1-2 large chopped carrots, (I use baby carrots),  about 1 full cup

8-10  drops (bit under 1/8 tsp)  of liquid smoke

Veggies should equal 2 full cups PLUS ½ onion.

Soak beans overnight in 2 qts. of water, then drain. I like to soak them 6-7 hours, too long and they get too "mushy" when cooking. Combine first 7 items, except the cubed ham steak, and bring to a boil, reduce heat, and simmer covered for 2 hrs, stirring occasionally. Take out hocks and Basil leaves; remove and return to soup any meat from bones. Stir in onion, celery, carrots , cubed ham, liquid smoke, and continue simmering, covered, for 45 mns - 1 hr. or until beans and veggies are tender. Remove cover and let soup thicken as desired. I like mine thick. Remember, it will thicken as it sits. It also freezes well, this gives ya a large bowl to eat and 4-5  one and a half cup containers to freeze.

Do you have a Swiss Verde version of that recipe for Del?:grin:

 

Looks delish and a great idea for those hocks I have in the freezer.

Yup. Pour ingredients in bag with souse-o-matic; come back in one week. Enjoy while eating close to bathroom. :P

I have this recipe more or less going in the crock pot at home right now. Just used cubed ham, no liquid smoke, and canned beans instead of soaking dry ones. A bit concerned the beans will be mushy, but all the online comments said they wouldn't be. We'll see.

I'm surprised Del hasn't piped up about the old cooks remedy to combat gas is a pinch of ginger in the beans....

Never heard that one.  But I am not an old cook.   I have heard about baking soda in the beans...

Well, I must confess- I came home today and the bride has made some shrimp on the stove for the evening meal so I'm probably back out of your Grace's. If I was ever there.:grin:

Too bad. We're all havin' a good time, or we wouldn't be posting.  Even learning some things along the way.That's what it's all about, IMO. Also appears that Reb is the staff guy of the cooking thread.

You gadflies can run a muck and pander for likes in your own threads more power to you. Nothing wrong with that.

But when other members complain about their threads getting hijacked you have to see it from the other side as well.

I know one you can sing....but it's sad that he has to satirize a song of a musician that just passed away, though.

So now you resort to name calling. Good one! If someone has an issue with me they can call me out on it. No problem here!

Ah, he doesn't see it from your side Glenn, because it's not his side. If one of us had attempted a rhyme, in reference to him, he'd be all over it.  He needs the site to run according to his views. I'm sure he's a straight, upstanding fella, ya know. He said so.  Maybe we should sing "his" song... but he'd go catatonic.  I'm sure you've all heard it in the service. I wouldn't stoop to that. I am surprised it took him this long to jump in. . I will say a certain person(s) did sum it up in that PM, right on the ol' button. *BINGO*!  Carry on!

Maybe tomorrow I'll post that song on his thread.....:lol:  Naa, not worth the effort. I'm not here for that kinda dump.

    • id rather fall through the ice and listen to tom yammer on and and on in his defensive videos.  i've got extensive hours with the proview.  no thanks.  tying cone angle to the sensitivity knob is one fo the dumbest designs i've seen.  it has application sure, but its limited
    • Well they won the 2 out of 3...keep it rolling boys
    • Do you know what model that would be? I suppose it's possible but it's just not reality. The large majority of criminals identify as Christians and that's a fact.
    • Brings back memories and reminds me of something I had totally forgotten!!   Decades ago was at a wilderness cabin with a couple guys and on of them had this carbine. I shot it a few times (open sights) and took it out for a walk next morning. Shot two deer at around 50 yards and they both dropped dead.  Am surprised the item you have in photo has a recoil pad since I do not recall any recoil at all. Always thought it was a handy little piece but never used it again and had no inclination to buy one. Do have a 10-22 of course
      (doesn't every home have one:) and other items. Many don't know Ruger makes their BIG rifle in .22 caliber with a laminated stock. Had one with nice Zeiss glass and it was a tack driver.  Don't recall what I did with it. Okay, back to standby.
    • Lots of different opinions on this topic apparently.  I've done about ever single one listed so far and the best way I've found is to lower the ice shack all the way, pop the tops on your catch covers and start drilling holes (try and be as close to the center as possible, no big deal if you're a little off).  Don't clear any of the slush just yet but place the hole sleeves down your holes.  With all the slush still there you may have to step on them to cut through the slush but it makes a really good seal.  Then I sweep what shavings have come up to the house (if any) back down the holes.  Get yourself a slush copter http://www.slushcopter.com/ and start clearing your holes.  I spent the $60+ on a slush bucket and totally regret it after spending my first season hauling slush all season.  The slush copter takes 10 seconds to clear a hole filled with slush and you don't have to lift anything or scoop your holes afterwards.  By far one of the best investments I've made for my ice shack.  Never blocked my shack either but not a bad idea to at least have a spud bar with to break yourself free if you do freeze down.    For some rookie advice:  Get yourself a slush copter and a set of IC Nuts https://winchdrivertools.com/.  Your back will thank you.  Also, if you have a Honda Generator it is mandatory that you get CLICK HERE to change your oil.  It makes empting your oil so much quicker and cleaner.  Other nice add-ons for a Honda generator is the extended-run fuel tank or an hour meter to keep track of hours (for oil changes).    Congrats on the new toy.  Tight lines!   
    • Anybody know anything recent up there?
    • Yes, build to order at this point.  Custom.  I placed my order in mid August, the main build started in September and he was done by the end of October.  He builds several at a time and has a third party building the aluminum base frame.  He is a mechanical engineer by trade so very much into the details. Gary kept me up to date along the way and we emailed frequently with build detail decisions to get it the way I wanted.  i believe they also just moved into a larger production shop. i forgot to mention earlier with those pictures that there is a wood board over the couch base hole and under the jacknife sofa.
